We have been trying to use FBE200 to stream to YouTube now for 8 months for 1 hour each Sunday, and it has had extremely varied results. We stream in 720p at 25 FPS, and we didnt change many settings on the FBE200, except to put our YouTube stream URL in.
for 90% of the hour it streams fine. For the other 10% the picture is blocky, and poor quality, and sometimes drops out altogether.
I did some diagnostic steps:
- Updated FBE to latest firmware
- reset FBE to defaults, and added our stream key again
- used wired connection to router instead of wireless
- ran a speed test while quality was bad on youtube (in case of bandwidth problem) - 10Mbps additional bandwidth was available on the speed test
Last Sunday, I disabled the YouTube stream function, and configured the FBE200 to output RTSP stream in 720p, and used ffmpeg on my PC to convert to RTMP and stream to YouTube with perfect results
Any ideas if I can get back to using my FBE200 without this extra step please?
